Me and my group are from Minnesota, we had never been here before but our guide name Jason was such a great guide that it seemed as if we’d been here before. He was throughly about where we were, how the water was so great as is. We loved it and I would recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Florida. Because you will not regret!

Best Tour Guide Ever Sam
Geraldine_C, Feb 2024
Our Tour Guide Sam was the best. It was myself and my nephew first time. And Sam made it so comfortable and easy to get our mind off controlling the Kayak. To where it became natural and we had the best time ever. Even though it was raining that didn't stop our fun. That's Sam for the best day ever.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you for the wonderful review! We're thrilled to hear that Sam made your first kayaking experience comfortable and enjoyable, despite the rain. It's fantastic to know that he helped you feel at ease and made it a memorable day for you and your nephew. We hope to see you again!

Relaxing Beautiful Morning Trip
Joel_D, Dec 2023
Had an amazing morning on the water. The river is a very beautiful kayak trip. It is very relaxing and all of the review photos don’t do it justice. The acrylic kayaks makes it even better. Our guide Bry was incredible. We are going to book the Silver Springs tour with her as well!!

David_L, Dec 2023
We had 2 great guides, Sarah and Steven..both very knowledgable about the river and wildlife we encountered. It was a leisurely paddle stopping for photos of birds and turtles. The clear kayaks were great, enabling viewing through the pristine, clear water! We will definitely return again! Thank you Sarah and Steven for a memorable kayaking adventure!

Fun kayaking trip
Nina_N, Sep 2023
The kayaking tour was fun and a great experience. Our tour guide, Sam, was engaging and fantastic! The tour was easy to find and it started on time. The kayaking wasn’t too strenuous. My favorite parts of the trip were chatting with Sam and walking through the beautiful springs.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
We appreciate the 5 star review! Thank you so much for joining us! We’re so glad you had such a great time with Sam!
Not much kayaking
Valentina_P, Sep 2023
Our kayaking adventure fell short. Just 15 minutes into our journey, we decided to halt at one of the enchanting creeks and continued on foot for half of our scheduled tour. The natural scenery and the spring were truly breathtaking, but the kayaking experience itself left much to be desired and seemed hardly worth the cost. For our next outing, we'll undoubtedly opt to rent our own kayaks instead of joining a group.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
We appreciate your feedback and take all guest matters seriously. Each of our locations offers a unique experience from one another and we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your time spent at Rainbow Springs. We are sure that guests are aware that our Rainbow Springs adventure involves many stops as well as swimming by providing a detailed description directly on our website. The secret creek is often guests most favorite part of this excursion and we are sadden to hear that this hidden gem was not one of yours. We are sorry you were not 100% satisfied with your experience at Rainbow Springs but hope that you will check out some of our other locations! We have many locations to explore that may offer more of what you are looking to get out of your adventure.
Great experience
